development with a focus on grades K-3. This course provides understanding of the
theories and historical context of early reading instruction. The course will focus
on the components of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension
as they are integrated within proficient reading, along with practical knowledge of
instructional frameworks and teaching strategies. Standards-based reading and writing
instruction that is culturally responsive and developmentally appropriate is introduced.
The use of assessment to guide instruction, as well as how to differentiate reading
instruction and understand how reading intervention models work in schools is presented.
